Expanded Cinematic Arts Residency CRATER-LAB/HANGAR

SPECTRAL is a Creative Europe project developed by European laboratories that promote expanded cinematic art. Deadline: April 30, 2023.

CRATER-Lab is a collectively organized film lab in Barcelona, ​​open to all those interested in working with photochemical film with an artistic and experimental approach. The lab provides all the technical devices and production tools necessary to make film-based projects. The collective is a platform compromised with the exchange of ideas and experiences around the practice of analogue cinema. It runs regular workshops, film screenings and exhibitions and is part of a network of artist-run film labs around the world.

Within the framework of the European SPECTRAL project, CRATER-Lab in collaboration with HANGAR presents SCREEN: an artistic residency where artists can develop new works in Expanded Cinema in Barcelona, experimenting with analogue devices, photochemical film, light and sound.

Crater-Lab’s programme in this project explores the screen as an active protagonist: receiving screen, expanded and contracted, in motion, light or dark, canvas screen, mirror screen, without screen, without projection…

The SCREEN residency offers three grants of four weeks of residence each, to carry out a project or part of a project of expanded cinema, paracinema, installation or film sculpture, that explores the concept of SCREEN.

These residencies are intended for artists whose work is focused on cinematic art practices such as live performance, installation, sculptures mainly worked with film / photochemical and/or in dialogue with other formats or disciplines particularly interested in the Screen and the Object of screening as a main subject. Proposals that suggest dialogues and relations with new media and other technologies are especially welcome.

  • 1-30 July 2023.
  • 1-30 September 2023.
  • 27 October – 27 November 2023.

Participants will receive an honorarium of 1000 euros for the development of their proposal and will stay in a one-bedroom apartment in Fabra i Coats, Barcelona during the four weeks. The programme covers travel expenses up to a maximum of 300 euros.

Projects of more than one artist, duo or collective are eligible, but they will have to share workspace, fees, and travel expenses.

  • Offer a workshop on an aspect of his/her specialty in the field of analogue film/performance art for the members of Crater-Lab and Hangar.
